Infection Control Course
An Introduction to Infection Control and Antimicrobial Stewardship
14-15 June 2013
Following the success of last year's course, ASID is repeating The Introduction to Infection Control and Antimicrobial Stewardship Course. It is targeted towards advanced trainees in infectious diseases and microbiology, but any infectious diseases physician or microbiologist may attend.
This 2 day course aims to give practical advice on how to run an infection control and antimicrobial stewardship service.
We do not plan to give textbook, didactic lectures, but rather give tips and guidelines on how to deal with the tricky situations.
We will have lots of panel discussions of real life scenarios, dealing with the day- to-day problems and challenges faced by the doctor in these situations.
We have assembled a panel of experienced infectious diseases physicians, microbiologists and infection control practitioners to guide you through these issues.
Registration is now open.
